Making a Difference
We were able to distribute warm coats, gloves and blankets to many families and they were very much appreciated. We had a family whose heater went out the same day I offered them blankets and that meant the world to the mother. Some of the students we gave coats to were very grateful and very excited to wear them and not be cold. One student was wearing 4 hoodies to school every day and was happy to take them off and just use the coat. New blankets are always a comforting item and the families that picked them up were feeling excitement to be able to use them. We were able to pass along some hats, gloves and blankets to our preschool and head start students as well and the kids were so excited to get a new hat and gloves.
Thank you for your generosity and the communities’ donations for us to be able to provide for our students and families in need.
Thank you CVHC for your vision and follow through that is helping so many!
We had a mother come in and was so stressed out about how she was going to get school supplies for her student. I let her know that we had things that we could give her son. I took her into the room and let her pick some things out and she couldn’t believe her eyes…She was so overwhelmed with gratitude & became very emotional and thanked me over and over… What a great thing that you are doing for our community. We appreciate it very much.
As a Home Visitor for Spanish speaking families for The Family Place Utah (TFPU), I have the privilege of working with families from Mexico, Central America, and even South America. On one occasion, during a home visit, I gave a family one of the kits the Cache Valley Humanitarian Center donates to TFPU to distribute to the many families we serve, and in the kit was toothpaste. This family was extremely grateful because they had ran out and didn’t have anymore toothpaste. With a great big grin, the mom happily accepted the toothpaste along with the rest of the hygiene kit with much appreciation and gratitude. Often we don’t think about the importance of the little things in our life, such as toothpaste, but it’s very often the case that it’s the littlest, most insignificant things that matter the most.
